Some weeks ago Migual Vidal and Felipe Ortega came to our MSWL Case Studies II class to talk about Wikipedia. Several other sister or side projects were mentioned and here I will try to summarize some of them. Wikipedia is not many things, but if you want to host and share some piece of information and Wikipedia is not the correct place, maybe one of this “sister projects” fits your needs.

  • Wikipedia es the free encyclopedia which anyone can edit.
  • Wikiversity supports learning communities, their learning materials, and resulting activities.
  • Wikisource is an online digital library of free content textual sources.
  • Wiktionary is a free dictionary
  • Wikinews is a free-content news source wiki, working through collaborative journalism.
  • Wikiquote is a vast reference of quotations from prominent people, books, films and proverbs, giving details about them with appropriate attribution.

A complete list can be found in the Wikipedia article about Wikimedia Sister Projects.
